It is the first time since Wasps in 2004 that an English side has achieved the feat.Only three other clubs, Toulouse, Toulon and Leicester, have done the same.“It feels brilliant. That was a really tough game, the players were tired at half-time and Exeter came back at us in the second-half,” Mark McCall told BBC Radio London. “It’s great that we have been able to back up what we did in the Champions Cup. It’s a great achievement for the club.”STATSExeter’s Thomas Waldrom ended as overall top try scorer for the Premiership season, picking up 13 tries, followed closely by Semesa Rokoduguni of Bath on 12 tries.Gareth Steenson scored the most points overall, while Harlequins’ Nick Evans was the most accurate goal kicker, slotting 87.5% of all attempts at goal.Charlie Hodgson, who played his final Premiership match, remains the leagues highest ever points scorer with a total of 2623 points. Andy Goode follows on 2285, and Olly Barkley on 1605.In this final, Man of the Match Alex Goode gained 167 metres, the most by any player in a Aviva Premiership final since Opta began recording match data in 2008-2009.Billy Vunipola made the most tackles, 16, with second rowers Maro Itoje and George Kruis on 14.Unbelievable year with unbelievable people!!
